Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.2.0)
Predicted to enable cell adhesion molecule binding activity and myosin binding activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including excretion; negative regulation of protein phosphorylation; and positive regulation of actin filament polymerization. Located in cell-cell junction; dendritic shaft; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in craniocervical region bone; glomerular tuft; lung; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in nephrotic syndrome type 23. Orthologous to human KIRREL1 (kirre like nephrin family adhesion molecule 1).
